I loved this blog post so much! The Harry Potter books are very close to my heart. I was exactly the kind of child you described (isolated, misunderstood, etc.) and at one point in time, Harry Potter was the only friend I had. It was a safe haven for me. I still love the books even today as an adult, though the way I perceive that world has shifted and changed over the years. I'd love to visit someday and attend one of your extra-dimensional classes. Fun fact... I'm a Slytherin, too. Who could pass up a common room under the lake? And green is just so my color. Haha.
